  • 1 sheet puff pastry if you like less filling in each pastry nest, use 2 pastry sheets
  • 1 egg

For the apple filling

  • 3 apples medium, diced
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 1/2 stick butter melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the crumbs

  • 2/3 cup flour add a little more if crumbs are too soft
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder


  • In a saucepan, mix apples with lemon juice, melted butter, sugar, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, corn starch and vanilla extract. Cook over high heat until bubbly then turn the heat to low and cook until you get a jelly like texture. While cooking, press the apples with a potato masher to mash into a puree.
  • Make the crumbs by mixing the crumb ingredients with a spoon until crumbs are formed. You might need to add a bit more flour to get to the texture you like.
  • Pre heat the oven as instructed on the pastry package. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
  • Spread the puff pastry and roll out a bit with a rolling pin.
  • Use the pastry wheel or a pizza wheel to cut the pastry into 9 squares/rectangles.
  • Add the pastry squares to the mini tart pans. If your pans are not non stick, line some baking paper to the bottoms.
  • Add the apple filling to each nest
  • Fold the corners inside.
  • Brush with egg wash
  • Sprinkle crumbs over each tart
  • Transfer the pans to a baking sheet and bake as instructed on the puff pastry package. The pastry should be golden brown.
